What is your PP Weekend Travel Playlist?

I'm curious what you'll all be listening to as a warm-up and recover from ProgPower. Anything special? Any particular reasons for it?

We talked about doing a Blind Guardian marathon because it's been ages since we had a good listen to them. BG was also the main focus of the online chat room where several of the attendees to PP met in 1997-8 or so. Plus it's remarkable how quickly the time goes when you're belting out the Bard's Song.

The albums of choice:
- Nightfall in Middle Earth
- The Forgotten Tales
- Imaginations from the Other Side
- Somewhere Far Beyond
- Tales from the Twilight World
- ANATO

Kalle has me in training to be able to sing wildly along with Threshold, so we'll likely have some Threshold karaoke. Scary.

I really enjoy radio surfing on road trips, so hopefully the guys will indulge me as we go through Germany and the Netherlands.

Anyone else already planning the tunes?

We will only listen to brutal death metal if it's up to me... which it isn't.
So I guess we'll go for blind guardian

Same soundtrack as each year: THE LAMENTATION OF THEIR WOMEN.

That'd actually be a good name for a brutal death band.

Prolly some Threshold, Amaran's Plight, Andromeda, Firewind, Mygrain, Savatage, Susperia, Wuthering Heights and Malpractice. To name just a few on my mp3 player.

Haha, you realise that even after BG and Threshold we have about 3 hours of free time open for your music? Bring your USB key or make requests to the trip coordinator at Mr.Fancy.Car@Otherdesk.apt

With two Ziltoidfanatics in the car I have a feeling there will be some of that. Will bring back some nice memories from last year.

Daniel, I will forever think of that album as "The Lamination of Their Women". It goes well with "Fear of a Blanket" or anything else by Sleepytime Porcupine Tree

Ziltoid is also mandatory in our car :hehe:

I just got off the phone with Legana and she has SUCH an Australian accent you wouldn't recognize her by voice anymore She sends her love, hugs and butt swats to everyone and expressed concern that "Her Swedes" will be getting into trouble without her there to nag

It looks like we'll be taking the train or flying, so our road trip playlist is dead. Unless... what are the chances of getting an entire train car singing along to a cheerful classic by Cradle of Filth? Hmm.

Haha, yes it will be awfully quiet without Legana, but at least we will compensate with one extra Swedish dude and some Norwegian dude :-)

oh crap.

I am going to be so poor after this trip.
but hey. let's grab a ghetto blaster with us to the train.
I guess our travelling company in the train will love us forever, but who cares?

Well, as far as good travelling tunes go, I guess it'll be my usual of a bit of Anathema (was so hoping for them at this PP), The Gathering, Porcupine Tree, Wolverine, Sun Caged, Ulrich Schnauss, Sigur Ros, Riverside, Dark Tranquility, Devin, Primordial & a bit of Moonsorrow for good measure! That should get me from the midlands, across the north sea and down to the south of the Netherlands in a good mood

I thought it was germany vs. Finland last year in the drunkard competition? Are you implying Norway might be in the running for first place this year?

Kenneth, yeah, I didn't have a train ticket in the budget either. The worst part is that I have to go to the train office to get the tickets since we're going to NL. Let's see if I can say "Mönchengladbach" in a French accent

I'm more than willing to sell you guys for profit in Geneva! There are enough female diplomats around that you could probably fetch a decent price. Great idea!

The irritating thing is that flying is the same price and only 2 hours faster. Plus it's harder to have drinks on the plane due to security. We have Kalle's Creative Sound Blaster thingie to bring too, but then we have to listen to HIS music *tragic sigh*

That is the standard arrangement - you guys perform and I document

Hmm, as the day draws closer I'm still drawn toward the BG marathon with Threshold and maybe something super cheesy, like Frank Sinatr

hmm... I think I'd go for a good dose of Frank Zappa spiced up with some good progressive death metal and listening to you two arguing in opera.
